Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans." - John Lennon
Today marks 200 days since I took the plunge and signed up for Weight Watchers for the last time. I've lost count how many times I've done this before. It doesn't matter how many really, because they've all prepared me for this time - and that's what counts.
I stumbled on the fact that today would be my "200 day anniversary" as I was working on the website yesterday. My little progress tracker on the home page lists the days and I saw it was at 199 days.
"Huh," I said out loud, even though no one else was in the room. "No shit?"
No shit. Somehow, I've managed to stay focused and on plan for more than six months now. Not 200 days of Weight Watcher perfection. Nope. But, every day I've tracked at least most of what I ate. I'm drinking more water. I'm more active.
All of these "mores" have brought me to smaller numbers on the scale, on my medical tests. and even clothing sizes.
Those mores have also come in more steps, more trying new things, more laughter, more tears. Just more of life, in general.
God blessed me with these 200 days. I'm grateful that I finally decided to be an active part of my life instead of wishing things would get better.
I did a Facebook Live video this morning talking a little more about my journey. About how time passes no matter what, the small victories that matter and realizing that it's ok when people notice the work you're putting in! Check it out below!
I'm eager to see what the 200 days has in store! That will be Saturday, August 11, 2018. I will be more than a year into the program. Yes, I'm making that commitment here! I don't know where my scale number will be by then — well, except for down. It will be down!!! But, there will be so much more and I know it will be cause to celebrate!!
I'm Marie. I'm working toward a 200 lb. weight loss goal. I'm doing it with baby steps. Follow my journey here.
